The admission is stunning, because Ratcliffe is a very tempered voice in the GOP. He doesn’t jump on bandwagons and he doesn’t spread hype.
“Gosh, y’ know, as I listen to that, Jim Comey is proud and wouldn’t change a thing? Really? He’s proud that he put Peter Strzok in charge of investigating Donald Trump? The same Peter Strzok who, while he was investigating Donald Trump, promised to “f*ck” him and to “stop” him? He’s proud of his hand-picked deputy director, Andrew McCabe who lied under oath; lied to the inspector general, and has been criminally referred for that?
“And we know Jim’s proud of himself, but the inspector general found him insubordinate, and many of us believe that he either is or should be under investigation for violating the espionage act; for recording his conversations with President Trump in the oval office, and then intentionally leaking classified information to start this investigation…”
Ratcliffe is one of only a handful of people who has seen and has access to all of the highly classified intelligence documents (fully unredacted) being considered for declassification by President Trump.
Many people argue the investigation involves the outing of the illegal surveillance system “The Hammer.”
The American Report outlined the events:
The Hammer is the Stasi-like secret surveillance system created by CIA/NSA/FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis L. Montgomery for Obama’s intelligence chiefs, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
The Hammer, under the Obama administration, negated every American’s constitutional rights to privacy, turning the United States into a police state where the federal government was weaponized by the Obama administration against its political enemies.
According to the secretly-recorded audio tapes released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow, Brennan’s and Clapper’s illicit super surveillance system “The Hammer” wiretapped Trump “a zillion times.”
Late that Sunday evening, just hours after General McInerney’s radio appearance, Strzok and Page exchanged a text message that explicitly referenced Dennis Montgomery and Montgomery’s attorney Larry E. Klayman.
Only a few hours earlier, General McInerney had referenced Montgomery and Klayman on “Operation Freedom,” exactly the same names about which Strzok and Page were now texting.
General McInerney appeared on Dr. Dave Janda’s “Operation Freedom” that broadcasts from terrestrial radio station WAAM 1600.
The next morning, the Russian Collusion investigation was born.
Early the following morning, Monday, March 20, 2017, FBI Director Jim Comey announced before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the FBI Counterintelligence Division, where Strzok served as Deputy Assistant Director, was investigating Trump’s connections to the Kremlin, and that the FBI had “no information” to support Trump’s tweet claiming that President Obama wiretapped Trump.
That morning, FBI Director Jim Comey lied to the intelligence committee and to the American people.
Comey was well aware that President Trump was under illegal surveillance because Montgomery had already turned over to Comey’s FBI mountains of evidence confirming the existence of Brennan’s and Clapper’s illegal surveillance system.
On August 19, 2015, Montgomery turned over to FBI Director Jim Comey’s office 47 hard drives that he alleges contain over 600 million pages of documentation from Brennan’s and Clapper’s secret surveillance system.
General McInerney and Admiral Lyons, two of the highest-ranking retired U.S. military flag officers, men of sterling character and reputation, took the information we exposed on “The Hammer” and President Obama’s illegal spying operations against Donald Trump to a wide audience.
Revered Four Star U.S. Air Force General Thomas G. McInerney (Ret) and U.S. Navy Four Star Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (Ret) brought our “Whistleblower Tapes” exclusive exposé to America’s airwaves on the March 19, 2017.
General McInerney read our March 17, 2017 feature investigation “Whistleblower Tapes: Trump Wiretapped “A Zillion Times” By ‘The Hammer,’ Brennan’s and Clapper’s Secret Computer System” to the American people, exposing the totalitarian surveillance state put in place by President Obama’s intelligence directors.
The cat was out of the bag.
The “Whistleblower Tapes” revealed that “computer genius” Dennis Montgomery, working as a CIA/NSA/FBI contractor, created the illicit surveillance system known as “The Hammer” that “hacked into all of America” for President Obama, John Brennan and James Clapper.
According to the Whistleblower Tapes, Brennan and Clapper utilized the “The Hammer” to spy on 159 Article III judges, the head of the secret FISA court, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, business leaders, millions of innocent Americans, and Donald Trump.
Montgomery states that Trump was wiretapped for years because, he alleges, the CIA feared Trump.
On March 4, 2017, two weeks before General McInerney appeared on “Operation Freedom,” President Trump tweeted “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
Immediately following President Trump’s tweet, the mainstream media and the Deep State Jackals set to work.
The carnivores tore into President Trump’s credibility, going so far as to suggest that President Trump was “crazy” for accusing President Obama of spying on him.
Instinctively, the jackals knew that their own survival depended upon covering their own Russia collusion tracks and destroying President Trump.
We published the “Whistleblower Tapes” in response to President Trump’s allegation that President Obama illicitly spied on him. We knew that President Trump’s allegation against President Obama was true.
Our discovery of President Obama’s utilization of “The Hammer” to wiretap Donald Trump began two years earlier in 2015 when we transcribed secretly-recorded audio tapes released in November 2015 by U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow.
Comey‘s “right hand men,” FBI Special Agents William Barnett and Walter Giardina, debriefed Dennis Montgomery in a secure SCIF after Montgomery had handed over the 47 hard drives that Montgomery claims prove that under President Obama Brennan and Clapper were running a massive illegal surveillance operation for “leverage” and blackmail.
The Washington Post reported on Monday, March 20, 2017, the day after General McInerney’s Sunday afternoon interview on “Operation Freedom”:
FBI Director James B. Comey acknowledged Monday that his agency is conducting an investigation into possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign in a counterintelligence probe that could reach all the way to the White House and may last for months.
The extraordinary disclosure came near the beginning of a sprawling, 5½ -hour public hearing before the House Intelligence Committee in which Comey also said there is “no information” that supports President Trump’s claims that his predecessor ordered surveillance.
Less than seventeen hours after General McInerney’s “Hammer” revelations, FBI Director Comey announced that the FBI counterintelligence division, where Strzok was Deputy Director, was investigating Trump’s connections to the Kremlin, and that the FBI had “no information” to support Trump’s tweet claiming that President Obama wiretapped Trump.
FBI Director Jim Comey was lying. Comey had already taken possession of Montgomery’s evidence in 2015 yet Comey proceeded to lie before Congress that there was no illicit surveillance of Trump.
“The proof of Donald Trump being wiretapped is in the documents that were handed over to the FBI” Montgomery’s attorney Larry Klayman told reporters Fanning and Jones.
Montgomery stated during a May 14, 2017 interview on the “Special Prosecutor with Larry Klayman” radio program:
I provided to the FBI seventeen businesses of Donald Trump, including the Trump Tower, the Trump leasing programs, all of these different programs, and including Trump himself and the various family members that had been wiretapped under these programs. There has been a wiretap on Trump for years…
…I produced 600 million pages. If you printed out each page it would be thirty miles high stacked one on top of another. The information is very sensitive information. They collected google searches, credit cards, phone records, images, pictures, anything and everything, and they did it for one reason: leverage. They didn’t know when, but they knew sooner or later they would need that information to use for leverage against a person … The amount of information is mind-boggling, and I gave all of that to FBI Director Comey’s office.
We know that President Trump was not the one with connections to Putin and Russia. Hillary Clinton, however, was deeply involved with Russia through her Uranium One and Port Canaveral Gulftainer scandals and the outrageous Steele dossier that she and her “progressive” comrades had paid for and put into play under the CIA’s and FBI’s “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” scheme.
Peter Strzok led the non-investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal server and criminal emails that included Special Access Program (SAP) “above top secret” intelligence. SAP includes missile defense secrets and, according to Politico, “top secret national security information derived from sensitive intelligence sources.”
Chinese military intelligence services operated a front company in Northern Virginia to hack into Clinton’s email server and forward to Chinese agents copies of every email, except for six, stored on Clinton’s illegal home server.
The Daily Caller reported:
Two officials with the [Intelligence Community Inspector General] ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion. Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official…Strzok didn’t act on the information the ICIG provided him, according to [Texas Republican Representative Louie] Gohmert.
Fox News reported:
A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News the details of the Caller’s reporting, and said that the ICIG was so concerned by the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents — including anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok — of the development after it was discovered via the emails’ metadata.
The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.
After one year of Secretary Hillary Clinton serving in office, while using her secret server that Chinese military intelligence had access to, China wiped out the CIA’s human intelligence assets in China.
“The New York Times” reported:
The Chinese government effectively dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward…
…All told, the Chinese killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 of the C.I.A.’s sources in China, according to two former senior American officials, effectively unraveling a network that had taken years to build.
Director Comey chose not to investigate Clinton’s illegal email server. “Regarding the handling of classified information, our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” “Comey explained during his infamous July 5, 2016 press conference regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Comey shared certain sensibilities with Secretary Hillary Clinton and CIA Director John Brennan. Clinton’s mentor was communist revolutionary Saul Alinsky. In the 1976 presidential election, future CIA Director John Brennan voted for Communist Party USA (CPUSA) candidate Gus Hall.
Comey told “New York Magazine ”I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”
Perhaps Comey’s own statements best explain his reticence to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
Referring to the situation as a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue, ”the FISA court revealed in April 2017 that the NSA, under President Obama, illegally spied on Americans
NPR reported that the NSA indicated its intention to “delete the vast majority of its upstream Internet data to further protect the privacy of U.S. person communications.” Such an action could be characterized as destruction of Federal records, destruction of criminal case evidence, and obstruction of justice. The FISA court let Brennan, Clapper and others amend their statements and orders destruction of criminal case records.
This destruction of evidence happened one month after General McInerney and the Whistleblower Tapes story revealed the illegal super surveillance system known as “The Hammer.”
Comey’s FBI was engaged in illegal surveillance. So was the NSA. So was the CIA. So was the Director of National Intelligence, which oversees these intelligence agencies.
According to the “Washington Examiner,” former FISA court counsel Joe diGenova stated during an April 24, 2019 Fox News panel discussion:
The problem for Brennan and Clapper and Comey and Baker and all of them now is, is that the FISA court has already communicated with the Justice Department about its findings. And their findings are that for more than four years before the election of Donald Trump, there was an illegal spying operation going on by FBI contractors, four of them, to steal personal information, electronic information about Americans, and to use it against the Republican Party.
There are going to be indictments. There’s going to be grand juries. John Brennan isn’t going to need one lawyer. He’s going to need five. . .
. . . The Obama administration, for more than four years before the 2016 election, allowed four contractors working for the FBI to illegally surveil American citizens, illegally. The FISA court has already found that.
Attorney General William Barr, defending his decision to order a review of the Trump-Russia probe’s origins, told a Senate panel Wednesday that he thinks “spying did occur” by the U.S. government on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign” NBC News reported on April 10, 2019.
Continuing, Barr told senators “I think spying is a good English word that, in fact, doesn’t have synonyms because it is the broadest word incorporating really all forms of covert intelligence collection, so I’m not going to back off the word ‘spying.’
“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal — it’s a big deal,” Barr added.
For this reason, Comey should be afraid… very afraid.
